Reliance One Joins Twisted Root at Santa Cycle

Auburn Hills, MI., Dec. 16, 2014

This holiday season Reliance One participated in the 1st Annual Santa Cycle Fundraiser at Twisted Root Yoga & Fitness. The event was held for 24 hours straight – it launched at 7:00am Friday, December 5th and finished at 6:00am Saturday, December 6th. The purpose of this event was to support a local Clarkston family in need. The funds were raised by asking riders to provide a donation and for the teams to come together and provide donations.

The Twisted Root, owned by Amanda and Rob Elosegui, put together the event at their studio where they have 10 spin bikes. Reliance One sponsored two teams and contributed over $600.00 towards the cause. Kristen Latimer, Vice President of Administration, teamed up with the facility to help expand the R1 Impact team. “Our wellness committee is always looking for opportunities to challenge the staff. We were thrilled to be involved with such a great cause and look forward to riding again next year,” said Latimer.

The total miles accrued for Reliance One riders were 813.9 miles – this was achieved by 26 participants. The miles totaled by the whole studio event for 24 hours were enough to get someone from Clarkston, MI to Las Vegas Nevada; approximately 2,030 miles!

Amanda and Rob are taking time this upcoming weekend to shop for the Clarkston family. The money raised for this local family of three children will be providing a complete holiday meal and gifts for the family for Christmas. As we draw near the holiday, the Impact team is looking forward to contributing to other causes.
